About the Project
“Floating Gardens” is a forthcoming essay film developed by Chinese artist Kanthy Peng. The residency aims to highlight the critical function of Malta’s gardens, most notably Malta’s Chinese Garden of Serenity, in fostering cross-cultural exchange, communication, and ways of life. During the four-week residency, Ms Peng will vivify Malta’s gardens through various creative approaches, including archival research, collaborative performance with the local community, and improvisation, and by drawing on her many years of experience in creating participatory projects.
*The residency is a collaboration with the Valletta Cultural Agency and the China Cultural Centre in Malta.
Spazju Kreattiv Artists’ Residency programme is organised in collaboration with the Valletta Design Cluster and the Ministry for Gozo
